Lyall improves his world ranking

Squash player Lyall PATERSON (22), formerly of Stonehaven, has reached his highest world ranking of 164. Lyall who is now based at Fairmount Athletic Club in Philadelphia continues to compete in tournaments across the USA when he is not working as a professional squash coach.

Lyall’s squash career began in 1999 when the County Hotel boasted the only squash courts in Stonehaven. Since their closure, local squash enthusiasts have had to travel to either Aberdeen or Montrose.
